The Soft Liner Alternative

A permanent soft liner is a layer of soft material that is fitted to the surface of a denture and rests next to the oral tissues.  In short, a soft liner acts as a cushion or shock absorber between the hard plastic base of a denture and the gums.

Soft liners can be used in the fabrication of new dentures or placed in existing dentures.  Permanent soft liners provide comfort and relief for individuals and is beneficial for:

  • Severely receded or flat gums that do not tolerate the stress of dentures
  • chronic soreness
  • gums with prominent or sharp bony areas
  • greater comfort ( a significant number of denture wearers with chronic discomfort have experienced great relief)
  • with soft liners, many denture wearers report that they can chew food more comfortably
